Just goes to show that the sighting of a military aircraft - that is actually flying - is a newsworthy event in the UK.

There was an A400M flying circuits at LGW last week - did about 4. Not a type I often see here.

Typical local rag nonsense. At least twice when the electricity company EC135 has been doing the power line survey locally, Cornwall Live has had a 'why was this yellow helicopter flying low?' item on its site.

On Sunday there was something called an A400M Atlas ZM407, using Liverpool. There has been a number of RAF visits recently. No reports of hub caps on anything else missing, by the way !

During employ in west Cumbria & after a particularly ferocious winter storm, the local rag's headline was "Storm Damages Bus Shelter". Real Craggy Island stuff.

Started off down here near Brighton - and gliding no less. Obviously a noise abatement procedure......
